My love for loading up those fluffy spuds doesn't stop with just the baked potato. It goes to loaded potato skins, twice baked potatoes, loaded mashed potatoes, even indulging in a bowl of loaded baked potato soup...topped with a little extra bacon, of course!
So, since we're gearing up for the first foodie holiday of the year I started thinking about the infamous tailgate recipes that we just couldn't live without on the big day. Of course there's wings, meatballs, sausage cream cheese dip, cheese dip, and the list goes on and on. Another menu item that's a must is baked potato skins.
Crispy potato skins, filled with fluffy potatoes and topped with cheese, bacon and a touch of sour cream. Oh my, my mouth is watering just thinking about them. Give me a little bowl of ranch and I'm in heaven. So when I started thinking of the big game, the infamous potato skins popped in my head. But, I wanted to do a little something different than those traditional skins and I started thinking of dips.
Dips are so easy to make and something that can be made ahead of time and easily transported. So, I started thinking about all the things I love on potatoes; the cheese, bacon, green onions and sour cream and thought that would be an amazing dip. Plus it can be made ahead of time and there's no worry about keeping it warm. It's a win win.
Loaded Baked Potato Dip
3/4 Cup Chobani plain Greek yogurt
3/4 Cup sour cream
3/4 Cup shredded sharp cheddar
